A seven-foot-long shark caused a few scares in the Force India ranks, approaching within a few metres of drivers Adrian Sutil, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Paul di Resta during a media call at nearby St Kilda Beach.

While enjoying the waters of the beach – located a few kilometres from the Albert Park circuit – di Resta spotted the shark and pointed it out to his team-mates.

"It was quite big, within about six feet of us," the 23-year-old Scot told The Sun. "It doesn’t give you much confidence to go in the water!"
